“The cheapness of man is every day's tragedy”

That title is from a quote from Emerson …

I was checking Tweets and saw Dave Fleet (@davefleet) quipped that Apple had shipped 3 iPhones to Canada… thanks Steve! Very funny, made me think …

Over the years in dealing with numerous companies, one of the better quips I heard from a client was that their American parent company viewed Canada like a bad version of Ohio, but cheap!

On top of that, the other day in the car, the radio reported on a new research study that stated Canadians view price as the #1 factor over customer service when buying a product, and CS lagged well-behind in second place. Duh! Who didn’t know that? What, are ya new?
